In case you didn’t know, the Popcorn Time app is also called “Netflix for pirates”, because it streams copyrighted movies and TV shows from torrent files just as easily as you stream a movie on Netflix.
As you might imagine, this is a legal grey area because technically the user isn’t downloading the illegal content on their machine. Anyway if users don’t like using the native app there’s now another way to use Popcorn Time. It can now stream directly into your web browser, making things even more convenient.
Most of us already stream content in the web browser, using YouTube, Hulu, Netflix or Amazon Prime, but native apps aren’t as easy on the desktop as launching the site in a web browser. However, Browser Popcorn replicates the experience for you. Since it is basically Popcorn Time, users get access to all of the content, but it only exists in the browser. Users are not even required to download an app anymore. Just visit the Browser Popcorn website and that displays all available content.
This way you don’t have to visit torrent sites and then download the content. The user interface is inspired from Netflix so it’s much easier to navigate and find the content you want. It’s a grey area, but we will leave the decision up to you.
